The Root

The Root


This word that is
the root of loneliness arcs away
from language itself

Not the first word,
it has not been recently added,
nor saved for last;

It is not the cry
of a well-known hero,
nor accomplished silence-

It is a body in pain,
even cherished,
when your heart stops
at the thought of escape

and the sound
of Stay.
